*** up up & away ***


yesterday was my dads birthday ...
it was the 3rd
celebration
since
he
died
*
... i celebrate my dads life ...
*his heart
his smile*
*his humor
his hugs*
*his fabulous steaks & cakes
his homemade
* pannekoeken & poppy-cock*
*his laugh
his sometimes goofy sense of fashion*
:)
*his love of books
&
...found treasures...*
*his homemade greeting cards
&
constant sense of adventure & youth...*
*the twinkle in his eyes
&
the memories of laughing with him...
....laughing so hard
* my tummy aches & my eyes are full of tears *

it was raining when i left for our visit
yes
rain....
....yep
there is still snow here in mn
so it was a messy day!
a
very
very
messy...gloomy...wet day

colman & i
arrived with our gifts...
... our songs ...
... smiles ..tears ...
love
&
... memories ...

we sent our balloons
up
up
&
away
&
before long...
they disappeared
i know he caught them
he's just like that
*
remember i said it was raining?
not anymore..
..suddenly blue..
... blue like your eyes dad ...

* i celebrate you *

I am sure your Dad was smiling down on you and Coleman that day and that is what turned the skies blue.
